Al Jazeera has a very informative update, posted earlier this afternoon, on the progress of both the 1300-strong Gaza Freedom March (GFM) contingent and the Viva Palestina aid convoy. See HERE for more.
It is a year today since 50,000 people took to the streets of central London, at extremely short notice, protesting at the Israeli bombardment of Gaza. A week later there was an even larger mobilisation, of over 100,000, in the biggest pro-Palestinian demonstration this country's ever seen. As the GFM and Viva Palestina activists remind us, Gaza is still a humanitarian and political issue - the movement to end Israel's blockade of Gaza is as necessary as ever.
